CHILDREN'S BOOK: 



FOR 



SCHOOLS AND FAMILIES.

GELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA.

PREFACE. 



This book is the result of the labors of a Committee appointed by the 
General Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America, 
and is issued in response to the demand for a Hymnal especially adapted 
for use with little children in School and Family. 

For school purposes, in addition to the hymns, a Service has been pro- 
vided, based, as far as practicable for use with little children, on the old 
Matin and Vesper Service of the Lutheran Church ; and as it is hoped 
that parents will find pleasure and profit in using the book with their 
little ones at home, an ample variety of Morning, Evening, and Table 
Prayers, and Morning, Evening, and Nursery Hymns has been inserted. 

Id the preparation of this book the Committee have, as far as possible, 
adhered to the principle of choosing only such hymns and tunes as com- 
bine substantial merit with child-like simplicity. In a few instances 
indeed, this principle may perhaps have been violated by the admission 
of hymns and tunes which may seem somewhat too difficult for little 
children. But this has been done only, when under certain subjects, 
and in the case of certain metres, a hymn or tune could not be found 
that was at once meritorious and simple to the degree that might be 
desired. Still, it is believed that the book does not contain a single 
hymn or tune that little children can not learn, provided they have a 

3 



XBxrfact. 

faithful, persevering, and patient teacher. Moreover, children should in 
early life be made familiar with the best hymns and tunes, as only these 
will retain their place and influence, when mere childish pieces, like the 
toys of early years, have been laid aside. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to Mrs. Harriet Reynolds Spaeth 
and Miss Mary Welden, of Philadelphia, for various hymns translated 
from the German; to the Rev. PI Greenwald, D.D., Pastor of Trinity 
Church, Lancaster, Pa., for most of the Opening and Closing Prayers; 
and to the Rev. F. M. Bird, of Lehigh University, for valuable assist- 
ance in verifying dates, and in ascertaining, as far as possible, the author- 
ship and the correct text of the hymns. In this part of their work, the 
Committee have encountered many difficulties. Quite a number of 
children's hymns are anonymous publications ; and the special subject 
of Juvenile Hymnody has not yet received that careful attention which 
makes it possible, in every instance, to determine which of several ver- 
sions is the original text. 

The Committee have been careful not to infringe upon any copyrights. 
If they have however unconsciously done so, and are advised of the fact, 
all due acknowledgments will be made in future editions. 
Christmas, 1884. 



SUGGESTIONS. 

1. The teaching of hymns and tunes should form a part of " The 
Instruction." 

2. It is in accordance with ancient usage to use two or three Psalms 
at the same service. 

3. If possible, the Psalm or Psalms should always be sung. 

4. In the Opening and Closing Prayers to be said by the children, the 
Teacher should lead. 

5. To assist the Teacher, and to save the time for other instruction in 
the School, parents should provide themselves with the book, and teach 
their children the Service and hymns, and if possible, the tunes, at 
home.

With their harps of gold, and their raiment white, 
As they follow their Shepherd with loving eyes 
Through the beautiful valleys of Paradise. 

3 Hosanna we sing, for He bends His ear, 
And rejoices the hymns of His own to hear; 
We know that His heart will never wax cold 
To the lambs that He feeds in His earthly fold. 

4 Alleluia we sing in the Church we love, 
Alleluia resounds in the Church above; 

To Thy little ones, Lord, may such grace be given, 

That we lose not our part in the song of heaven. Amen.

2 It tells me of a Saviour's love, 

Who died to set me free; 
It tells me of His precious blood, 
The sinner's perfect plea. 

3 It tells me of a Father's smile 

Beaming upon His child ; 



It cheers me through this little while, 
Through desert, waste, and wild. 

1 Jesus, the Name I love so well, 
The Name I love to hear; 
No saint on earth its worth can tell, 
No heart conceive how dear.

2 His human Name they did proclaim 

When Abram's son they sealed Him, — 
The Name that still by God's good will, 
Deliverer revealed Him. 
We love to sing, etc. 

3 And when He hung upon the tree, 

They wrote this Name above Him; 
That all might see the reason we 
For evermore must love Him. 
We love to sing. etc. 

4 So now, upon His Father's throne, 

Almighty to release us 
From sins and pains, He gladly reigns, 
The Prince and Saviour Jesus. 
We love to sing, etc. 



5 To Jesus every knee shall how. 

And every tongue confess Him, 
And we unite with saints in light, 
Our only Lord to bless Him. 
We love to sing, etc. 

6 O Jesus, by that matchless Xame, 

Thy grace shall fail us never; 
To-day as yesterday the same. 

Thou art the same for ever. 
Then let us sing around our King, 

The faithful, precious Jesus. 
For there's no word ear ever heard. 

So dear, so sweet, as Jesus.

Lies an infant weak ;

See this star once more : 
Not as wise men saw it

Asking. " May we hring Him 

Childhood's love to-day?" 
Answering, "Come, dear children,

Forth in radiant majesty

From the plain, and mountain-height

That with beams of light divine

2 He who came to save us, 

He who bled and died, 
Now is crowned with gladness 

At His Father's side. 
Never more to suffer, 

Never more to die, 
Jesus, King of Glory, 

Is gone up on high. 
All His work is ended, etc. 

3 Praying for His children 

In that blessed place, 
Calling them to glory, 

Sending them His grace; 
His bright Home preparing, 

Little ones, for you ; 
Jesus ever liveth, 
Ever loveth too. 

All His work is ended, vtc.

His home is everywhere, 
He loves that little children 
Should speak to Him in prayer.

And became a little child, 
He was so good and gentle, 
Obedient, meek, and mild. 

4 He had no naughty tempera, 

He said no angry word,

And all good little children

2 Little eyes to read the Bible, 

Given from the heav'ns above ; 
Little ears to hear the story 

Of the Saviour's wondrous love ; 



Little tongues to sing His praises; 

Little feet to walk His ways; 
Little bodies to be temples 
Where the Holy Spirit stays.

Though goodness I have none; 
May now be folded on His breast, 
As birds within the parent nest, 

And be His little one? 

.'I Othi rs there are who love me too; 
But who, with all their love, could do 
What Jesus Christ has done? 



Then if He- teaches me to pray, 
I'll surely go to Him and say, 
" Lord, keep Thy little one."

And by His mercy gently led 

Where living waters run ;

Who loves the little one.

A weary war to wage with sin.

'2 There's a rest for little children 

Above the bright blue sky. 
Who love the blessed Saviour 

And Abba, Father, cry ; 
A pest from every turmoil, 

From sin and danger free. 
Where every little pilgrim 

Shall rest eternally. 

3 There's a home for little children 

Above the bright blue sky, 
Where Jesus reigns in glory, — 

A home of peace and joy : 
No home on earth i> like it. 

Nor can with it compare, 
For every one is happy, 

Nor <<»u]d be happier, there. 

4 There's a crown for little children 

Above the bright blue sky. 
And all who look for Jesus 

Shall wear it by-and-by ; 



A crown of brightest glory, 

Which He will then bestow 

On all who've found His favor. 

And loved His Name below. 

5 There's a song for little children 

Above the bright blue sky. 
A Bong that will not weary. 

Though sung continually ; 
A song which even angels 

Can never, never sing; 
They know not Christ as Saviour, 

But worship Him as King. 

C) There's a robe for little children 

Above the bright blue sky ; 

And a harp of sweetest music, 

And a palm of victory. 
All. all above is treasured, 

And found in Christ alone ; 
() come, dear little children. 
That all may be your own.

That we might become His children, 
And be called by His Name.

Lived to teach us to be holy, 
And for us was crucified.

When His birth-place was a stable, 
And His softest bed was hay.

Trust and love Him all thy day-;

Hoping what I most desire; 

Not a mother's fondest wishes 

Can to greater joys aspire.

2 Thou blessed soul, what canst thou fear? 

What tiling to thee can mischief do? 
Thy God is now thy Father dear, 

His holy Spouse, thy mother too. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

3 Though thy conception was in sin, 

A -acred bathing thou hast had; 
And tho' thy birth unclean hath been, 

A blameless babe thou now art made. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

4 While thus thy lullaby I sing, 

For thee great blessings ripening be; 
Thine Elder Brother is a King, 

And hath a kingdom bought for thee. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

5 Sweet baby, sleep, and nothing fear; 

For whosoever thee offends 
By thy Protector threatened are, 

And (iod and angels are thy friends. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

6 When (iod with us was dwelling here, 

In little babes He took delight; 
Such innocents as thou, my dear, 

Aic ever precious in His sight. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

7 A little infant once was He; 

And strength in weakness then was 
laid 
Upon His virgin-mother's knee, 

That power to thee might be convey'd. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 



- In this thy frailty and thy need 

He friends and helpers doth prepare, 
Which thee shall cherish, clothe, and 
feed, 
For of thy weal they tender are. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

9 The King of kings, when He was born, 
Had not so much for outward ease; 
By Him such dressings were not worn, 
Nor such-like swaddling-clothes as 
these. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

10 Within a manger lodged thy Lord, 

Where oxen lay, and asses fed: 
Warm room we do to thee afford, 

An easy cradle, or a bed. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

11 The wants that He did then sustain 

Have purchased wealth, my babe, 
for thee ; 
And by His torments and His pain 

Thy rest and ease secured be. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

12 Thou hast, yet more to perfect this, 

A promise and an earnest got, 
Of gaining everlasting bliss, 

Though thou, my babe, perceiv'st it 
not. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep. 
Be still, my babe; sweet baby, sleep.
